If you’ve wondered how your “soft skills” compare to other business people, GMAC, the Graduate Management Admissions Council, is offering an assessment called Reflect. It is designed to help you understand your leadership strengths and areas of opportunity. Reflect is the result of business schools asking GMAC for assistance in assessing soft skills and providing recommendations for management development. It’s definitely worth a look. You usually don’t have access to such a complete and valuable assessment unless you’re in a formal leadership development program. And, you don’t need a facilitator or coach to help you.
GMAC is selling the product for $99, a small price to pay for valuable insights into the classic leadership skills that companies and organizations are looking for. The price includes your personal report on competencies such as innovation, operational thinking, decision-making, and strategic vision. What makes it a great product is that you also get suggestions about what to Start, Stop, and Keep in your related behaviors, recommended resources such as readings and videos, and you cans see your results compare to the critical competencies for different functional positions you may be considering for your next career. It will even help you build a work plan to help you achieve your development goals. You can access your report action plan, and resource recommendations for three years.
In movie review terms, I give it an enthusiastic thumbs up! Visit GMAC to learn more.
